That's great! Isn't there a pill form of cayenne? I like to put in my crockpot: water, fresh lemon (juice and slices), freshly grated ginger, and cayenne pepper powder. Then I try to sip at throughout the day as a tea (may want to strain out the ginger). It's especially useful when trying to get over a virus or cold.

Cayenne is probably the spice we use the most. We use lots of herbs and spices, but cayenne is number one. I also use hot sauces liberally after reading posts about their benefits against the formation of blood clots. Good thing too, as I love hot :D

Better powder than capsules.

It is recommended that the cayenne powder be used, as opposed to capsules. It is believed that you are only getting a small part of the potential effect of cayenne pepper by taking it in capsules. When you put cayenne in your mouth, your stomach secretes digestive juices before the cayenne ever gets there. So when the cayenne gets down there, your stomach is ready for it.

But if you swallow a capsule, your tongue tastes nothing. A capsule goes down in your stomach, and your stomach notices nothing, at first. Then, 5 minutes later the gelatin bursts, and you have a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in your stomach and your body is shocked. You surprised it.

What is going on is that some of cayenne's healing action occurs right in your mouth. As cayenne touches your tongue, the cayenne absorbs in seconds and nerve endings send signals throughout the body - sending waves of fresh blood throughout your body

No, I doubt if using cayenne would be bad in any circumstance. Remember, the powdered form is the stuff you find in the spice aisle at the grocery store. You would probably add it to foods that you eat, or like I said, make a tea mixture with it. I am interested in the nattokinase. Is it available anywhere other than online? Do you think I could get it at Whole Foods or someplace like that?

i get mine at a local health store. i'm not sure if say walmart or such would carry it.

after reading this about takeing the powdereed form i thought i'll just break open the capsules and put in mouth to get the effect dania speaks of. i knew it was hot but holy s***t---water water cracker cracker. whooo!!!! i'll have to practice and try the food and juice thing. i'll try most anything if it can help this miserable life.

afterwards it came to mind that my dad said that they would put cayenne pepper in their socks when they were kids to help keep their feet warm. he was born in 1912 so back then and in the mountatn they relied on just what they knew an common sence not much doctoring but he lived a good pretty much healthy life.

Dairy is very good for cutting the heat in the mouth from peppers. Yogourt is best, but milk, butter, cheese, ice cream will all soothe the tongue.

Has anyone had any luck with other vasodilator's?
It makes sense to me to try to keep the veins wide open.

when i first got high blood pressure i was looking a lot at natural ways to lower blood pressure. if i were better with computer skills i would put the study done on here but it said beet juice was one of the best things to lower blood pressure. when i could get unsalted beet juice my blood pressure goes down.

only reason i'm mentioning this is because a lot of you guys seem to have low blood pressure and maybe keep an eye on your blood pressure.

otherwise beetjuice sounds good to me.

Beet juice sounds interesting, but I never looked for it at the grocery store. Are there any brands? Or do you have to make it yourself?

Has anyone used it? Results?

I bought beetroot juice the other day at our local Whole Foods. I pour about half a glass full of it then fill the rest of the glass with apple or cranberry juice to cut the taste (I hate beets!).

It's not too bad that way. I've done this 2 days in a row and both nights I've had a lot of vivid dreams, which is unusual for me so....maybe it's the beets? Who knows?

I'll keep doing it because they're so very healthy and see what comes. It's pretty much a no-risk trial.

You can make your own beet juice.

Just wash them and throw them into a juicer. I use organic ones.

You can use the stalks and leaves too. I often add carrot, apple and celery.

Fresh ginger improves the taste. May try adding some cayanne...

I have a Breville juicer (around a hundred bucks if I recall).
